First Flush Moonlight Darjeeling
Heady floral but sweet notes curl around your senses, and that’s before the water hits the leaf.
As the water infuses these incredible leaves, hints of sweet jasmine greet you.
On the tongue this tea shines, a hint of bergamot and orange blossom dance across your palate.
The lingering end note gives you a satisfying sweet finish.
An exquisite Darjeeling tea, these leaves are processed as a white tea.
This truly is a tea to taste, all the flavour is as always naturally produced from the tea leaves
All the way from Badamtam Tea Gardens in West Bengal, India, this stunning first flush tea is very fresh as production finished in April 2019.
Teas mellow with age, especially in the first few months, so it will become smoother as time goes on.
Always interesting to discover how the taste profile of teas change, a journey worth experiencing.
Our airtight foil lined packs are a great container to store the young tea in as it locks in the aromatics within the leaves.
Also keeps out any strong smells which can taint the tea leaves.
This tea demonstrates just how incredible white Darjeeling can be.
Try it cold brewed, as regal as it gets!
